A Journey to the future

This is an installation project for Samsung at Milan design week. The installation itself is about 21m long and 4m height.

I was working on the interactive part for this project. The idea is to create an interactive particle system that matches the particle flows created by our motion designers. User is able to interact with the particles using Leap Motion. By simply waving their hands and trying to move the particles with their gestures the particle will form an image and reveal a message.

This project is build in C++ with Cinder framework. It was my first attempt to use cinder in a project but it went really well. And also in order to hold a good number of particles I need to put the particle movement calculations into the shader. This method is very abstract and hard to debug but the outcome is very satisfying.
